French automotive supplier, Delfingen, renowned globally for its on-board networks protection solutions and fluid transfer tubing for vehicles, has boldly committed to a greener future, transitioning its Cebu manufacturing operations to a 100% renewable energy supply through a partnership with Ayala group’s ACEN Renewable Energy Solutions (ACEN RES). This groundbreaking shift will significantly reduce the carbon emissions of Delfingen, making a substantial contribution to global climate change mitigation efforts.
Formerly powered by conventional sources, Delfingen made the decisive leap to fully renewable energy, utilizing the Green Energy Option Program (GEOP). This progressive government initiative empowers customers with an average demand of at least 100 kilowatts to source power from renewable sources, such as solar, wind and geothermal, and choose their renewable energy supplier over the local distribution utility operating within their region.
Edmark Perez, Delfingen Cebu plant manager, said: “Our unwavering commitment to reducing our carbon footprint goes hand in hand with maintaining our products’ global standards. As we transition to renewable energy, we not only contribute to environmental preservation but also bolster our customers’ sustainability goals.”
Ela Mina, ACEN RES assistant vice president and head of account management, expressed deep pride and excitement at being chosen by Delfingen as their energy supplier and sustainability partner. “Our mission at ACEN RES is not just about simplifying the transition to renewables for businesses in the Philippines. It’s about igniting a broader transformation in corporate sustainability, championing the use of renewable energy as a concrete step towards achieving ESG goals. Through this partnership with Delfingen, we are not only providing a more sustainable energy source, but also creating significant cost savings and fostering a cleaner, healthier planet for future generations.”
ACEN RES, the retail electricity arm of the Ayala Group, stands at the forefront of renewable energy solutions. As a licensed retail electricity supplier, ACEN RES powers businesses and industries through the RCOA and the GEOP, making a significant contribution to the reduction of global carbon emissions and reinforcing the critical importance of ESG considerations in businesses today.
ACEN RES’ generation company, ACEN, continues to aggressively expand its portfolio across its key markets in Asia Pacific as part of its bold aspiration to reach 20 GW of renewables by 2030.
